Still alive, just went without internet for a hard couple of days.
Saturday April 2nd
Only got 2 hours of sleep thursday night so I pushed fridays workout to today. Moved to a new house and forgot to bring my belt so I couldn't hit 305x3. 305x1 felt like a 1RM. Still probably constituted the right stimulus for a medium day though. I also find it odd and dissapointing that I have such a steep drop off in reps as the weight goes up. Add 20 pounds to the bar and remove a belt and a set of 12 becomes a set of 1-2.
On the minute. Still felt pretty easy so I'll make another 5 pound jump or two.
1:03/1:00 interval. Third set really fucking sucked and I was not happy about the prospect of even doing this metcon because I hate the feeling of this high intensity interval stuff, but feel good now that its over.
Beach Muscle Superset
Lat Raises 10#x5x12
Pull Overs 15#x5x12
This one brutalized me, at least the flyes and pull overs.
Hurts me elbows. I got a vid of myself squatting and what I thought was back rounding isn't so I'll discontinue these.
Monday April 4th
Only four sets since I dont really have that high up to climb. I've decided I dont like depending on a belt to lift heavy weights, so I'm switching to beltless only squatting. The belt is just artifically inflating my numbers and giving me a false sense of strength IMO. In a real world situation I'll be lifting raw, so I might as well train raw.
Still felt kind of easy. One more five pound jump.
Ditched the straps completely too, but belted up with my thin 2 incher for the last set.
Tuesday April 5th
I guess I slacked off but that last set is really starting to hurt. Cry some more, right?
Had some neck pain, I think I need to give myself more recovery, at least every other day.
Lost my wrist roller in the move, switching to these. I'm getting alot less wrist pain when wracking a low clean thanks to this extensor work.
Wednesday April 6th
1 rep lost for a 10 pound increase? I can dig it. My weight is also holding steady at around 210 since I bumped up the kcals, 3000 most days with the occasional 3500 day. Don't see the sense in exceeding that amount for the foreseeable future.

Going to try and start setting PR's in this movement.
1.40 mile run
Sad, sad stuff. This wasn't all out, but it still had me breathing pretty hard and wanting to quit. I'm going to run like this MWF and work my way up to 30-40 minutes. Then I'll start doing things like intervals, speed training, fartleks and whatnot. Running is actually something I semi-enjoy so it should be easy to stick with, unlike burpees which always have me looking for excuses.
